Exotic & Invasive Species

Exotic Species

The DES Exotic Species Program coordinates activities associated with the control and management of exotic aquatic plants, as well as activities associated with the implementation of education programs and volunteer plant monitoring programs.

The program, initiated in 1981, has five focus areas: 1) Prevention of new infestations, 2) Monitoring for early detection of new infestations to facilitate rapid control activities, 3) Control of new and established infestations, 4) Research towards new control methods with the goal of reducing or eliminating infested areas, and 5) Regional cooperation. more...

PlanNH Charrettes

In 1996, the Belmont Mill was reconstructed and rededicated for community purposes.  This was a community spear-headed project facilitated by the first PlanNH Charrette in 1996

PlanNH 2010 Charrette ConceptIn 2010, PlanNH, a non-profit organization working with communities to initiate discussions concerning the "built environment" chose Belmont for a second Community Design Charrette program - an exercise in which local citizens and PLAN NH volunteers came together to explore potential solutions to planning or design issues in individual New Hampshire towns. The result of that Charrette was an impressive modular design for the revitalization of the Village. Several projects have been completed and/or are underway towards that goal to revitalize the village and provide those services and amenities designed to create a "A Village For All".
